September 24, 2018 – Luckystrike Resources Ltd. (LUKY.V) is pleased to announce that it has completed its phase 2 exploration program at the Hot Spot property, White Gold District, Yukon Territory.
The phase 2 program consisted of:
- 165 soil samples (assays pending)
- 18 rock grab samples (assays pending)
- 30-line km ground based magnetic survey
- Addition of 20 quartz mineral claims
A gridded geochemical soil survey was designed to expand the Sure Bet gold-in-soil anomaly to the north, also tracing a recently identified, coincident geophysical magnetic low (Figure 1). In addition to the geochemical soil survey, rock grab samples were taken from hand excavated pits at the sites of anomalous gold-in-soil samples (see press release dated September 10th 2018).
To compliment the new geochemical samples a tightly spaced ground-based magnetic survey, comprising a total of 30-line km was completed to the north of the Sure Bet zone. This survey ties onto the existing phase 1 survey of 27-line km that was completed earlier this year. Ground magnetic surveys have proven to effectively delineate the mineralized host rock which successfully returned 0.42 g/t Au over 44 m in trenching (see press release dated September 10th 2018).
Twenty mineral claims totaling over 407 hectares were also added to the Hot Spot property (Figure 2). The new claims were added to north to cover prospective ground, indicated by the 250 meters x 1000 meter gold-in-soil anomaly that remains open to the north and a magnetic low feature that is believed to represent the host rock that returned 0.42 gpt Au over 44 meters (video update).
Assay results from the flagship Lucky Strike property are pending and are expected in the near future. These results will be reported as soon as results are received, compiled, and interpreted. For details of the 2018 exploration program at Lucky Strike please see the September 10th, 2018 press release.
Bill Chornobay President and Chief Executive Officer comments:
We are very pleased with the progress made on the new drill ready Hotspot property and our flagship Luckystrike property, both of which have no underlying royalties or property payments. We look forward to reporting results in the near future.
